Abstract

The Indian children’s film industry lacks the attention enjoyed by its adult counterpart, commercial cinema, yet several Indian films for and about children have created a distinct space for themselves. This article examines four Indian children’s films that delve into contemporary socio-political issues, contrast individual hope with social despair, and end with the onset of social hope through children. In the process, they highlight the romantic ideologies of redemption and reform in Indian children’s literature and cinema.
